Cornerstone Chiropractic in Avon will be hosting an event for Sheltering Wings, a domestic violence shelter for women and children located in Hendricks County. For a $20 donation, the practice will be offering a free examination.
The event will be held April 15-19.
Participants will receive a complimentary initial exam, a comprehensive health history, and a report of findings (x-rays, if needed, are not included).
Sheltering Wings houses women and children who are actively fleeing domestic violence. Since the opening of its doors in January of 2002, more than 12,000 families have called the shelter in need of help. Along with the programs the shelter offers to families in crisis, they also reach out to the community via education workshops, resource cards and Teen Dating Violence program to area schools and youth groups.
To make an appointment, call Cornerstone Chiropractic at 745-7700. For more information about Sheltering Wings, visit the website at www.shelteringwings.org or call 745-1496.
